    These will last a week – hilarious – I’d say about 15 minutes!
    Cynthia, these are fabulous and I love everything about the main flavours, goat cheese and lavender, only, I am constantly thinking, should there be some honey? Well, that’s for me to try out. Love the inspiration.

      Thank you so much, Nicole!!! You’re so right, honey is amazing on these! I drizzled a bit over mine and was in love. I bet it would be even better if subbed for some of the sugar.

    I absolutely adore goats cheese, something I’ve been missing whilst pregnant. As these are baked, looks like I can indulge in my favourite cheese again. Thanks for the inspiration! Kate @foodiesagenda

      Ahhh, CONGRATS!! So exciting, Kate!! The no-goat-cheese notwithstanding :) Thank you for the sweet words and hope you and your little one are doing wonderfully <3

    Cynthia, you’ve just added a dangerous weapon in my baking arsenal: a how-to on making cheesecakes without springform pans or a bain marie! I love your use of goat cheese; I might adapt your recipe and attempt a citrus goat cheese cheesecake.

      Oh my gosh, a citrus goat cheese cheesecake would be SO amazing!!! I made a citrus goat cheese frosting a few years back that I still dream about — in cheesecake form it sounds even better. I can’t wait to see it if you try it!

        Your frosting recipe was actually what inspired my cheesecake idea! I experimented with and blogged about making carrot cake with citrus-chèvre glaze a few months ago. It was a ray of sunshine in my little corner of Cambridge! :)

      Halving it would be SO perfect! I was totally a walking cheesecake by the time I was through with these, baha. I hope you like them if you try them, Kristin! Thank you so much for the kind words!

    Cheesecake game = SO STRONG! The combination of goat cheese, honey and lavender sounds absolutely DIVINE. And in mini form! I’ve been lusting after a set of those little Staub coquettes foreverrrr, they’re the cutest!

    The prettiest of all the cheesecakes, especially in this adorable mini form! And also: You were lightyears ahead of me before you made these–I still haven’t made a cheesecake in my life EVER, which is just plain crazy.

    I am currently obsessed with goat cheese. I know that many people don’t like it because of its strong flavour, but I am in love and I would love to have it in a cheesecake form. Yours sounds heavenly. Need to try this!

    This sounds fantastic, Cynthia! I’m definitely with you on my first few cheesecake experiences: always with Philly cream cheese and pre-made graham crust! Extra points if I made the strawberry sauce from scratch. I’m thinking about doing some kind of fall cheesecake thing soon, thanks for the inspiration boo!

    All I can say is bravo, Cynthia! These are so extremely precious and silky in texture that I’m about to drool on my hubby’s ipad. Not good. I know that’s cliche but hey–I don’t lie! And I need to get me some cute little pans for baking…things just start to add up, you know? 😉

    Holy cats…these look ridiculous. I made some lavender cupcakes this Summer with lavender essential oil and they were awesome! Cheesecake is such a weakness for me though, I think this is next on the list!

    Cynthia, you have SUCH a way with words (i.e. a way of making me want to run to the kitchen and whip these up right now!!) Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!!
